San Jose Surviving Spouse Benefits Lawyers

At the Law Offices of Cynthia G. Starkey, we offer a full-service Social Security Disability Insurance practice. As part of our practice, we help clients who are seeking surviving spouse benefits.

If your spouse has died, you may be entitled to receive surviving spouse benefits. Even if you were divorced at the time of your former spouse's passing, you may be entitled to benefits. You may qualify for surviving spouse benefits if:

  • You are 50 or older and disabled
  • You were validly married for at least one year
  • You were married for at least 10 years as a divorced spouse
  • You file for benefits
  • Your disability started not less than seven years after your spouse died
  • Other rules may also apply
